POP! - Panoply of Possibilities

Welcome to the Panoply of Possibilities (POP!)


Among the benefits of attending The Gatton Academy is the opportunity to explore different careers in STEM and careers that intersect with STEM. POP! presentations and activities let students meet professionals one-on-one and through interactive experiences.  Students learn about what these professionals’ work encompasses and the career paths they took to get there.

POP! events are held throughout the school year and are open to any current Gatton Academy student.

If you would like to be a POP! presenter, please contact our Academic Opportunities Coordinator at cheryl.kirby-stokes@wku.edu.
